BEST PLACE FOR A ROMANTIC DINNER 2017
PIETRO’S ON THE OCEAN, 10900 S. Ocean Drive, Jensen Beach, 249.5255, www.pietrosontheocean.com
Walking into Pietro’s on the Ocean, with its wide view of the blue ocean and lacy wavelets running up on the wet sand, you know you’ve come to the perfect place for a romantic dinner, and if you’re ready, to pop that special question. Let Pietro’s know ahead of time and the staff will work with you to set just the right scene. “It’s a very romantic place,” owner Pietro Valentini says. “You can listen to the waves outside, and the ocean is beautiful and always different.” The tables are set with sparkling white linen and blue water glasses to go with the restaurant’s nautical theme. Skillfully made boat models are displayed on small shelves near tables. Menus are extensive and it can be difficult to choose from among so many exquisite dishes. “If we know there will be a proposal, we give them a romantic table,” he says. “Sometimes they go out and walk on the beach for the proposal and sometimes they stay at the table. We accommodate both ways.” Pietro’s large deck is also a romantic place to sit under a market umbrella, eat a perfect seafood or steak dinner and watch the waves while breathing the clear salt air and perhaps seeing some gulls, pelicans or terns go by. Patrons can also enjoy entertainment on the deck in the evening while watching the stars above the ocean.
